JD Seller,

Once again you are correct. I was going too slow. I upped teh speed to 2.6-2.8 mph and I have 90-95% whole cobs on the walkers. hardly any ground corn, but there is still some. I just can't run it any faster than this. I am on hillsides that are steeper than what teh machine tilts and when I get moving any faster, it starts sliding down the hill or blowing corn off teh back on the bottom side of teh chaffer. So, I am content.

Today I ran 214 bushel corn, with a 59.9 lb test weight. I'm happier than:

Gallager at a farmers market

A witch in a broom factory

An antelope with night vision goggles

Christopher Columbus with speed boats

hahaha love those commercials...

I'm starting tomorrow at 7am, to load out a truck and when the truck gets moving and teh frost isn't too bad, I should be able to have that farm cleaned off before 2pm or 3pm and move on to the next.
I ran one morning when there was very heavy fluffly frost on the corn and teh whole combine filled up like a snowcone. There was water and big snowballs coming out of it until 10am. I won't do that again!

I am glad you are starting to understand how to get your machine setup. You will have some grinding with any machine. Plus you will find some varieties do it worse than others. If you are getting over 200 BPA then you are not losing very much.

What is the moisture of the corn??? Usually the dryer the less grinding. I have seen some varieties that you could hardly shell by hand so they would grind even when dry.
